Lucy frazer of cambs conservatives interview 17 april 2015
Frazer was born on 17 May 1972 in Yorkshire, England. She is a descendant of Jewish immigrants. Her grandfather was Dr. Hyman Frazer CBE, a mathematician, barrister and educationalist, Headmaster of the Gateway College in Leicester, and her father, Colin Peter Frazer, was a partner at collapsed Leeds legal firm Fox Hayes.
Frazer was educated at Leeds Girls' High School, an independent school in Headingley, a suburb of the City of Leeds, followed by Newnham College, Cambridge, where she was President of the Cambridge Union.
Frazer worked as a barrister in commercial law, including being a member of the legal team in the Fox Hayes v. Financial Services Authority court case in 2010, and went on to become a QC at the age of forty. She was selected as the Conservative Party candidate for South East Cambridgeshire in December 2014. Her selection drew controversy after there were allegations of a miscount of votes. Frazer was reaffirmed as the candidate in January 2015 and went on to win the constituency in the 2015 general election with 28,845 votes (48.5%), a margin of victory of 16,837. Frazer was elected to sit on the Education Select Committee in the same year.
Frazer apologised for any offence she caused with comments in her maiden speech, in which she jokingly described Oliver Cromwell's sale of Scots into colonial slavery as "an answer to the West Lothian question – but not one, of course, that I would recommend".
Frazer supported remaining within the European Union prior to the 2016 referendum. In July 2016, she became the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Paymaster General and Minister to the Cabinet Officer Ben Gummer.
Frazer has two children and is married to David Leigh, CEO of global education company Study Group.
